Chilli and T-Boz Were Paid 60K
So we all know Chilli and T-Boz are still battling their former manager Pebbles in court after she sued VH1 and Viacom for defaming her character in the biopic movie which aired almost to years in October.
Jasmine Brand is reporting that they both only got paid 60K each for the movie according to new court documents
T-Boz explains under oath that the contract with VH1 paid her $10K for her life rights and then $50K as a consultant fee on the film. The lawyer grilling the singer asked if she believed this was a low amount for the movie, to which she says that it’s what she agreed to with VH1.
Chili admitted that $60K payment was all they received for the movie. However, she did state that there were other financial incentives for doing the TV film, including the fact that the band had recently got back the masters for their re-records which means they would make money when their music is used, like in the VH1 film. However, the singer wasn’t aware of the amount of money she has made off the masters for their songs.
